BSHS - English Faculty's insight:

"If theres one thing to be learned from Pips experience in Charles Dickens' 'Great Expectations', its that expectations from others or from society can force one to make terrible decisions and pursue false values." -  this article analyses Pip's development throughout the novel.

Modern Versions of Romeo and Juliet

Modern Versions of Romeo and Juliet | Year 8 English BSHS | Scoop.it

I have accumulated a short list of modern movie versions of the Romeo & Juliet narrative:
Tristan & Isolde (2006)
Pocahontas (1995)
Romeo & Juliet (1968)
The Love Letter (1998)
Wuthering Heights (1939)
From Here to Eternity (1953)
The Notebook (2005)
All of these movies share the narrative of two people from two families in conflict who fall in love. They can serve as relevant discussion points to any unit on Romeo and Juliet as they provide the opportunity to discuss the translation of literature across centuries.
